Quote from: Catops on April 23, 2016, 11:13:07 PM</bellgab> Good on the transparency, technology, professionalism and social media fronts so far. Great choice of <pompomwave> first guest </pompomwave>.<bellgab>
Quote from: The General on April 24, 2016, 12:27:46 AMThis is my take as well. Just from what small interaction I had with her when she used to do segments for my podcast, she brought her A game every time. She's got a great voice and talent for radio. She really gives it her all, and it shows. The people that throw so much hate at her are only doing it because A) they're jealous and/or B) she's not Art. Neither of which she can do anything about.Good luck with your show, Amy, I'll check it out.

Quote from: zeebo on April 22, 2016, 10:01:13 PMGood luck Amy. Please enjoy the customary 10 min. bellgab grace period.
Quote from: ( Amy ) on April 23, 2016, 05:17:14 PMAs I said before though, me leaving the show from a cost perspective was only logical.No drama. No hard feelings. No F-U's. Just. Pure. logic.
Quote from: GravitySucks on April 23, 2016, 05:51:21 PMSo if a Big Ten or SEC school had offered you a fill ride scholarship and a starting position as a Freshman, you would have said no?
Quote from: JesusJuice on April 24, 2016, 05:22:34 AMI made this thread for Amy's show. It's not a thread to shit all over Heather. We already have a thread for that. Thanks.
Quote from: Auslandia on April 24, 2016, 05:21:29 AMWow, this shit spills into pretty much every thread on Bellgab. Amy-- get ready for the swelling opinion tsunami from the world's most decorated talk radio critics. Also be prepared to tie in HW and Art into every discussion about your show. Welcome!
Quote from: SredniVashtar on April 24, 2016, 05:33:50 AMIt's unwise to get on a high horse when you are a mental midget.
Quote from: Auslandia on April 24, 2016, 05:35:34 AMYes, you're right. I'll shut up & let you explain everything.
Quote from: Auslandia on April 24, 2016, 05:32:56 AMhe's jacked up on moonshine and angry about Amy's show.
Quote from: ( Amy ) on April 24, 2016, 12:31:37 AMMy research focal areas are cognitive and cellular neuroscience in regenerative health.
QuoteThat said, I don't take myself too seriously.
Quote from: brig on April 24, 2016, 06:30:35 AMHi Amy! You're a bellgabber, so I will give a listen to your show. I hope its WONDERFUL! I would LOVE something good and/or fun to listen to in that time slot. It's good to see you give credit to the work of others, however, that does not necessarily mean it all ends up turning into a worthwhile product. To call criticism of a bad product 'hate" concerns me. "Hate" and "Haters" seem to have become highly over used words on bellgab of late, and nothing more than a failed attempt to make critics feel guilty, and be quiet, instead of working on the things that could make the show better IMO. If you can't recognize a bad product, how can you create a good one?I'm pretty sure you are prepared for, and open to the "Critics of bellgab" otherwise you wouldn't be here. I'll be tuning in, and hoping for the very best success to come your way!GOOD LUCK!!

Quote from: WOTR on April 24, 2016, 03:05:31 AMI was just thinking back to the "golden days" of RCH (when Ross was producing and somehow managed to make Hoagland interesting) and Bellahaven (before one of the hosts had "issues.") Each had found a dedicated group here and both provided a great experience. I don't know that I will or will not be counted among your fans, but I think you may find some support here...I like your posting style. You appear capable of dealing with criticism (probably necessary, if you are going to stick around here) and you are gracious (not a necessity of being here, and often seen as a weakness by the pack.) Anyhow, good luck.
Quote from: SredniVashtar on April 24, 2016, 05:03:18 AMTalent for radio is what she signally lacks. I think most people could do a few minutes about a favourite subject on a low-rent podcast, if they had to, but that's not the same as hosting a show that requires a broad understanding of multiple topics, engaging guests in an actual conversation (rather than giving occasional cues while someone delivers a lecture) and being quick enough on your feet to handle random callers. With all due respect to her super powers, she comes across as an airhead who's out of her depth. I struggled with ten minutes of her show the other night. Supposedly she was a big fan of Prince, and she had plenty of time to prepare some things that she wanted to say about him, but I got the impression that she sat down at the mic and babbled the first nonsense that came into her head. Art could manage that, because he was good at what he did, but it's a bit harder when you are a third-division podcaster. The Titor mess was another example of someone who hadn't done the work to check his credentials, and then bleated about what a horrible audience she had, because they grew tired of hearing the BS.
Quote from: Auslandia on April 24, 2016, 05:32:56 AMNot even 1 show yet! Wilford Brimley in my avatar is riding in to blow up your fucking barn because he's jacked up on moonshine and angry about Amy's show.
Quote from: 73s on April 24, 2016, 06:56:50 AMSo are you a doctoral student in biomedical engineering then? Or a graduate? It sounds like an impressive resume.Well, I would certainly take you much more seriously than Bobo17! You're already far too articulate to be a typical talk show host. I have to say, learning more about you really has me intrigued to check out your show. All we knew was that you briefly read news on MITD. Obviously there's a lot more to you than that.
Quote from: ( Amy ) on April 24, 2016, 11:25:35 AMTwitter has been my Bellgab, folks. Brevity in 140 characters or less.
Quote from: ( Amy ) on April 24, 2016, 11:25:35 AMAs for "bad product," listeners will always dictate that.
Quote from: 73s on April 24, 2016, 11:31:30 AMI think as listeners we all want some sense that our feedback matters, and that negative feedback is at least considered and not rejected out of hand as hate. I feel that I can wander over to EOTR and tell Michael his last show sucked and I don't see him being personally insulted (it didn't suck by the way, lol). Some hosts take their ball and go home when seeing criticism, and the walled garden approach turns some of us away. Sometimes it's not just forum comments that are ignored but private messages and emails. We recognize things get busy and personal replies are not always possible but I think you get the idea.It has been suggested on BellGab that hosts should not read forum comments directly because it could ruin their self-confidence or throw them off. I'd suggest a friend read through them in your behalf at least and give you a filtered summary of relevant criticism. Just my 2 cents.
Quote from: ( Amy ) on April 24, 2016, 11:57:12 AMNo fear here in reading the comments. I see this as an opportunity to extend the show dialogue. Never a "walled garden," from this perspective.As I've said before, if you ever want to do me a courtesy and send me a PM on Twitter, I read and respond faster there.If you've got a lot to say, shoot me an e-mail. firstname.lastname@example.org I probably won't be able to keep up with all of the Bellgab comments during the show, but I'll be looking at Twitter and the area I've setup for subscribers to send me a direct message. Fun fact: My MOM of all people reads Bellgab! And Twitter.... And Facebook groups. No joke. She's NOT the kind of person that filters info, so when I did the news, I'd get a daily summary of my shortcomings in one oratory digest. (Thanks, Mom. Yes, Mom. Uh-huh, Mom.)She can be wickedly and poetically brutal.Nearly every day I see her, she's not even through the front door before I get the, "I saw you were up late this morning," speel.I would not be surprised if she's not already stumbled across this thread by now. I still love her to death. You can poke fun at me for that. If you knew her, you would too. She was an educator. I've gotten used to the fact over the years that a lot of people call her Mom. She'd even bake cookies for my co-workers, so they'd call her Mom too.So yeah. Post your criticisms. If I don't see them first, JUST KNOW that I'll be hearing them from my mother.Your point WILL be made.
Quote from: Yorkshire pud on April 24, 2016, 11:33:25 AMYou're sure making up for it on here..
Quote from: brig on April 24, 2016, 11:46:22 AMFor SURE! Even critics are listeners, and I would go so far as to say EVERY listener counts.
Quote from: GravitySucks on April 24, 2016, 12:01:31 PMAs an early subscriber, I prefer that my batch of cookies arrive just before your first show, and I prefer them while they are still warm. Peanut Butter Oatmeal or Oatmeal Raisin will be fine for the first batch.
